Gray Crazy Lace Agate

Crazy Lace Agate

Agate, a form of chalcedony, is an excellent gem material because of its attractive colors, hardness, and ability to take a brilliant polish.  Agate is named after the Achates River in Sicily, now know as the Drillo River, which remains a major source of this gemstone.  Agate was valued by ancient civilizations; the Egyptians used it before 3000 B.C., and it was discovered with the Stone Age man in France (20,000-16,000 B.C.).

Crazy lace agate has variegated patterns in multiple colors.  No gemstone is more creatively striped by nature than agates.

In ancient times, agate was highly valued as a talisman or amulet.  It was said to quench thirst and protect from fever.  It is said that agate cures insomnia, protects against danger, promotes strength and healing, and ensures a healthy life.
